EXCLUSIVE! FIRST-EVER DIGITAL RELEASE ANYWHERE! (SAJ-35) http://www.fmp-label.de/freemusicproduction/labelscatalog/saj35.html . DIGITALLY REMASTERED. Here are two of the leading lights of British improvised music in their first documented duo performance. The conversation is pointed, intense, and the product of extremely careful listening. Parker and Guy's extended techniques only enhance the dialogue, creating a mood of fierce, focused interplay. A classic of its kind.
"The duos of Evan Parker and Barry Guy present some outstanding music on SAJ.... The basic strategies are close, fully integrated call/response interactions that recall and develop the stylings of the Music Improvisation Company. Within this are fun snippets of melodic material. The drive is fairly intense." -- Cadence
